defend themselves. fortunately for president obama, that's his job this week. he signed up for it, and now it needs doing. there's no walking away from it, nothing that takes precedence over putting his head and heart into ensuring the absolute best to the absolute best of his ability that people in the northeast part of the country recover and begin to reconstruct from this natural emergency. and every second this pred applies himself, the most he must hope that the electoral momentum will shift in his direction because these several days will test if the president shares the hope on which he's built his public life. here is the latest on sandy's devastating impact. this storm has been blamed for at least 38 deaths so far. there's new video this afternoon showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie of new jersey called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundations and left parts of the coast under water as you can see. new york city is also dealing with devastating flo

reason that i am for president obama is that he has done a good job with a bad hand. keep in mind that all through 2007 and 2008, then senator obama, crossed america with senator clinton and senator biden and other good democrats all talking about how bad the economy already was. median family income after inflation was lower than it was the day after i left office. poverty was up. all of these things mr. romney talks about now were true before the crash. because of the policies he now advocates. and then came the crash just six weeks before the election. he took office and the economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. now, the economy lost jobs for about 15 months. but when it started again, and president obama's program starting kicking in, in just 33 months, we had 5.5 million jobs, as of yesterday. when someone criticizes an office holder, you have a right to ask them, "compared to what"? so let's look at our most recent comparison. if you don't count the losses in the crash against president bush and you just look at the seven years after the brief slow down we had when the dot com

is what kind of jobs they're going to be. that's been a criticism of president obama. he has made up for all the jobs that have been lost on his watch, but as often happens, the recovery has created jobs that are not as lucrative as the ones before. the president's plan now that he's unveiled focuses on manufacturing jobs. he says he wants to add a million new manufacturing jobs over the next few years. now, the u.s. has added nearly half a million manufacturing jobs in the last 32 months, but over the last few months, we've started losing them again. it's lost 38,000 manufacturing jobs. give me the thinking behind this, bob. this is where i'm talking to people and they say i need the distinction between goals and ambitions and dreams, versus how this happens. why does the president believe he can actually create a million manufacturing jobs and what's the follow on effect of doing so? >> here's the economic argument, ali. a lot of manufacturing companies that sent jobs abroad over the last 10 or 15 years, they are bringing them back because transportation costs actually are becoming

, like in ohio, we have polling date that says people credit john kasich rather than obama for jobs and, at the rate we are going it will take us three more years to get back to the level of employment we had when the recession began and in the meantime, we're on a 7-year backlog of people looking for jobs an people know that in their bones and just know it. >> chris: joe, both sandy and the economy, your thoughts? >> i agree with karl on sandy. i think initially it helped the president. i don't think any of the negatives will impact by electionday. that might accrue because of the things karl is talking about but i think that the economy, while it has been a drag, one has been improving and you see in the president's numbers, his approval rating is going up and, has been up above 15 in some of these polls, a lot of them and iowa released a new iowa poll, that showed from the first time, right track, the majority of iowans think the country is on the right track and that has been going up in national polls as well, because they see an improving economy and that is -- accrues to the pres

judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided over 28 months of job gains and 17 months of job losses. but there hasn't been a month that saw a net job loss in more than two years. the best month in terms of job gains was may of 2010 when 516,000 jobs were added. the worst month in terms of job losses was march of 2009 when nearly 800,000 jobs were lost. so let's take a look at the jobs totals since the president's first month in office. 4.62 million jobs lost. when you add in this month and the revisions f

going to focus on creating jobs. instead, he focused on obama care which killed jobs, crippling unemployment conditions. i know when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant. >> rousing stuff there. joining us is ezra klein of the "washington post." good afternoon. >> good afternoon. >> a jobs report this late into the election isn't likely to sway a significant number of voters, but for the past few months romney has kept losing his talking points. what does he do now? >> well, i mean, he says it remains a bad economy which is not growing fast enough. i would actually give him one of the talking points you took. it's true people rejoined the labor force this month but a lot have dropped out of it since four years ago. the problem with the talking point, the problem with all of romney talking points is the entire economy is not about obama. romney does appear to believe the president has magic definitive powers about -- >> that is the central irony of this man's claim, isn't it? >> a couple years ago when george w. bush is being blamed for a wea

job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for, on the down-ballot is just amazing. do you think he can swing some races? >> i think absolutely. if you look at -- i'm seeing popping into my inbox, smaller candidates like val demings who's running for a congressional seat, but she's getting help from bill clinton. he's working in palm beach county, voters who are older and mainly white and voters who think clinton is credible. he's a validatetor for these down-ballot candidates -- and people ticket split in florida. and he's a guy who's saying keep that ticket together. >> president obama is not going to lose the state of minnesota. i can speak with a little bit of authority and credibility on that one. so president clinton going to minnesota tomorrow, he's going to be there to try to defeat michele bachmann in supporting a guy named jim graves who is a self-made guy. he's a very successful businessman. if the republicans wanted to get somebody to run, this is the kind of guy that they'd go after. >> yeah. >> what kind of effect can bill clinton have on a high profile tea pa

economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. th
